Voluntarios Por El Océano
Chile has one of the longest coastlines in the world. Its seaside stretches around 6,435 km. As part of the Corona x Parley partnership, a series of beach cleanups are taking place from north to south and across the country from January through February 2018. The collaborative Voluntarios Por El Océano initiative aims to inspire individuals in Chile and beyond to take action to protect the oceans and become ambassadors for change within their communities.
The beach clean series kicked off January 4 in Arica, where Parley collaborators, including big wave surfer Ramon Navarro, teamed up with local volunteers to intercept plastic waste, educate communities on the impacts of marine plastic pollution and explore ways we can all be part of the solution through Parley AIR: Avoid. Intercept. Redesign.
Plastic waste recovered through cleanup efforts will be diverted from landfill and ultimately given new life in uses that help progress the global movement. Alongside the cleanups, Voluntarios Por El Océano will engage thousands across Chile and beyond through Corona Sunset Festivals, awareness campaigns and educational programs.
Additionally, four volunteers were voted to attend Parley Ocean School in the Maldives, where they will gain the experience, inspiration and knowledge to create change back home.
